The prospect vs. the proven.
CLEVELAND — Seattle right fielder Mitch Haniger, who leads the team in home runs and RBIs, suffered a bruised left knee after fouling off a pitch in the first inning against Cleveland on Sunday.
Wow. Who knew that Jarred Kelenic would be washed up after just 23 games in the major leagues?
Kendall Graveman and his 100-mph two-seam fastball are back. That’s a nice option – and, no doubt, the best option – to have for Mariners manager Scott Servais as he attempts to solve ongoing riddle of his late-inning bullpen usage.
The Cleveland Indians have traded first baseman Jake Bauers to the Seattle Mariners for a player to be named or cash.
Jonathan Schoop homered and Isaac Paredes hit a go-ahead single as the Detroit Tigers rallied from a first-inning deficit and took advantage of three errors to beat the Seattle Mariners 8-3.
Dillon Thomas, in his long-awaited major-league debut, made a memorable catch leaping up the right-field wall in the second inning to save a run for the Mariners.
The Detroit Tigers have now won 25 games this season, which surprisingly isn’t even among the lowest in baseball or in the American League Central.
This is just a blip, yeah?
Even with Jarred Kelenic’s obvious talent and the Mariners’ belief that his overall approach at the plate would eventually break him out of a miserable slump, the team simply couldn’t continue to keep Kelenic in the everyday lineup or even on the major-league roster and let him struggle his way to infamy.
It started ominously Sunday afternoon for Mariners rookie starting pitcher Logan Gilbert.
Leading early by four runs and with their best starting pitcher again flashing dominance, Saturday night looked like it had the potential to be more than all right for the Seattle Mariners against the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim.
